Drakon's Promise (Blood of the Drakon, #1)
by N.J. Walters

Darius Varkas is a drakon. He's neither human nor dragon.

He's both.

He's also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon's blood can cure any illness and prolong a human's life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.

When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she's quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.

Drakon's Promise was definitely a sexy book! If you are looking for a book with a lot of steam mixed with paranormal aspects, then is a book you might want to check out! However, if you are looking for a book with in-depth world building and a slow burning romance, then this probably isn't a book for you. I was hoping for more of the latter, so I was a little disappointed with this book. 

I thought the concept of this world was so interesting and unique. I really liked what the author created, but I didn't like the way it was developed in the book. I felt like all of the information about the world felt very info-dumpy. A lot of the world was just explained in a few paragraphs in the beginning. It was hard for me to fully understand everything. However, by the end of the book, I had a much better understanding of the world. The plot was slow moving at times, especially in the beginning. I was happy that as the book went on, the pacing did seem to improve. 

I did like the main female character, Sarah. Sarah was a sweet and caring woman. I liked that she stood her ground when she needed too! Her magic powers were very interesting, and I really liked it whenever she got the chance to use her powers! #GoBookNerds

Darius was a typical alpha male. Darius was dominant, protective, and he oozed sex appeal. I will admit that he was very sexy, but sometimes he was a bit too "alpha like" for me. His relationship with Sarah was passionate and steamy. I thought their romance was insta-lust that crossed over into insta-love. Their instant almost obsession with each other was a bit cheesy, but I thought the author did a great job at writing sexy moments!

Overall, I would say this was an intriguing book. I personally didn't LOVE this book, but if you are looking for a quick, smutty read with dragons then this is perfect for you! I am interested to see what the author will do with Darius' brothers and if she expands on the world more. I might not pick the next book up immediately, but I do eventually plan on seeing what happens next.
